Oil Spill

1 357 1 349 1 350  1 352   1 355 1 356

Last weekend we went down to Destin and had to go check on the oil spill. These pictures are in South Walton Co. (seaside, grayton beach…) There are small tar balls on the beach, about the size of quarters and smaller. Daddy was allowed to put up a barrier of GeoHay along some of the beach, to keep the tar balls from going too far up on the sand.

Last week they also tried out some of their products in the water and guess what worked the best, Hay!

The large oil slicks still haven’t come in close enough to shore for them to really be able to use the hay, but I’m sure it won’t be long. They are also trying to come up with some way to get the tar balls off the beach. Hopefully the oil will stay off shore so we can still enjoy the beautiful gulf!
